The laws of electromagnetism at the scale of a few atoms

Researchers have demonstrated the reciprocal relationship of electricity and magnetism over a thin magnetic film. 

Physicists discovered the relationship between electricity and magnetism more than a century ago. The intricate relationship between these entities, previously thought to be separate, currently goes by the name „electromagnetism‟. It largely governs the world in which we live. From large power grids to fans in our rooms to electronic gadgets, everything runs on these well-understood principles.

Merging memory and computing in nanoscale devices for efficient computation

Scientists have devised a novel approach to combine memory and computation units 

Modern computers carry out computations — also called ‘logical operations’ — on massive amounts of data that are stored in specialised memory devices. The computing blocks need to exchange significant amounts of data with Random Access Memory, or RAM, a type of temporary memory. Over the years, various applications that search and process the appropriate data from memory devices have increasingly demanded faster computations.
